Fat Kid Rules the World by K. L. Going
Fat Kid Rules the World

phx_suns_fan_1, November 14, 2007

Troy is a 296 pound obese kid goes through a lot of stuff in his life and finds a great friend in curt yet it’s his only friend when he is about to commit suicide and then there is troy. They then try to start a band and go big and Troy is the drummer in the band and he has no idea how to play the drums. This book had many excellent things in it one thing Troy had was he was about to commit suicide and he met a dirty homeless kid named Curt. This book was very interesting and I enjoyed it very much. I never wanted to put the book down every time I had to put the book down I was upset because I was so into this kind of a book. This book had a lot or cursing in it I would not have anyone read this that is under 6th grade. I liked how Troy didn’t have any friends but then when he met Curt they were already best friends, I also like how they started a band and troy had no idea how to play the drums but he quickly learned. I think the author’s message in this story was to say even if you are fat and you have no friends there will always be someone there for you. I think it is a very good book to read but not for young kids since it has so many curse words in it. When Curt invited Troy into a new band I think that showed Troy that he is not a horrible person and you can always find friends would recommend this to anyone that is a teen no younger than that. This is a suitable book for all genders. I think a lot of people could enjoy this story. I think parents would probably not enjoy this book as much as students would but it is very enjoyable.
